Not To Get Carried Away--PP #283, GDP #023

February 21, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

This week the amazingly talented Joanne is our hostess.  She has a Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  Up, Up and Away!  We can't wait to see what you create!   The Global Design Project Challenge is also featuring balloons this week, so I am adding this to their challenge.  

My base card is Smokey Slate.  The top layer is Neenah White Solar paper trimmed with a My Favorite Things die.  The stamp set is from WPlus9-Unforgettable.  I stamped the little elephant, the sentiment and balloons with Memento Black ink.  The balloons were colored with Copic Markers.  I added a black and white Baker's Twine bow and clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for fun.  Wink of Stella was added for shine.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
